When Pantone announced that it would have not one, but TWO colors of the year, the internet broke into 163 million pieces. How beautiful are rose quartz and serenity together? I know, super girly, right? But these two colors set the tone for major romance: specifically, the kind that takes place on a canoe in the middle of a lake in rural central Ohio. Prepare to be mesmerized by this beautiful styled wedding shoot.
I had the honor of creating the marbled wedding invitations and paper goods for this styled shoot, and I was inspired by the natural ripples and patterns created by moving water (so fitting for this canoe themed shoot!). If you’ve never had a chance to try the centuries old practice of marbling (also called suminagashi) you most certainly should. It involves spreading paint over a container of water, creating patterns in the paint, and then laying paper, fabric, or your material of choice on top of the water to pull up the marbled paint. The result is absolutely gorgeous, and is the underlying theme of the stationery I created for this shoot.
The florals for this styled wedding shoot also provided splashes of serenity and rose quartz, with blooms including peonies, roses, ranunculus, tulips, blue thistle, and LOTS of greenery.
In addition to serenity and rose quartz, we pulled in accents of copper/rose gold, which turns out is THE perfect compliment to serenity and rose quartz.
I also made some hand lettered leaf place cards to add just a bit of rustic romance.
